St. Paul, Minn.-based WindLogics, a wind resource assessment company, has moved its corporate headquarters to expanded facilities in St. Paul's historic Bandana Square. With this move, the company has tripled its headquarters space and added a new operations center, WindLogics notes.

According to Mark Ahlstrom, CEO of WindLogics, the company found a growing need for better ways to analyze operating wind projects and separate wind resource variability from other operational issues. "We must feed this knowledge back to improved assessment techniques and financial projections, as well as provide alternative ways of dealing with wind variability risk," Ahlstrom says.

Recent additions to the company's technical staff include Crystal Paulsen, meteorologist; Randy Hill, operations scientist; Tom Saxen, forecast meteorologist; Michael Wick, software developer; Ben Hendrickson, meteorologist; and Joe Sullivan, project manager. The company also added Pam Rendine-Cook, chief information officer, and Patty Kleinschmidt, executive assistant, to its management staff. David Elliott, research scientist, has joined the Grand Rapids Research Center.
